Glasgow Rangers failed to overturn a red card handed to Alfredo Morelos last week.

Morelos was given a two game ban following his dismissal against Aberdeen.

Pundit and former Celtic striker John Hartson is still not happy.

 

Hartson has told the Evening Times that he believes Morelos has only been punished because the SFA felt they had to do so, not because they determined that he deserved it.

Morelos was previously let off after incidents against Celtic, which opposing fans had wanted him banned for.

Hartson said: "In my opinion, they have only now meted out this punishment to Morelos because he has been sent off a number of times now, and they feel that they have to be seen to be doing something to hammer him."
